To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars in April 2017, another two new meerkat toys were released featuring Aleksandr in a Luke Skywalker outfit, Sergei in an Obi-Wan Kenobi outfit. From the movie Beauty and the Beast meerkats Oleg as the Beast and Ayana as Belle appeared on the shelves. In the Christmas of 2017 and early 2018, an advert featured Oleg in an BB-8 outfit. All toys were not released again after May 2018, although a toy with Oleg in pyjamas was released in September 2020 based on an advert where Oleg and Ayana won’t go to sleep. In April 2023, two new adverts were released. The first was VR, which features Sergei & Carl playing with virtual reality headsets whilst bumping into themselves. The second was Washing Machine, which saw Carl cleaning Aleksandr’s coat in a washing machine. He then takes it out and gives it to Sergei. However, much to Sergei's dismay, the coat had shrunk in the wash.

After Oleg and Ayana's return in 2019, a new advert series was shown called Endless Adventures, where the meerkats would walk into a door and find themselves in a movie (which are usually made up ones except for Farmageddon, which was animated by Aardman, and also features Alexander's voice actor Simon Greenall).Since the launch of Meerkat Movies, only Aleksandr and Sergei regularly appeared in the main television advertisements, though the Meerkovo characters continued to feature in the Coronation Street sponsorship bumpers after 2018.

In May 2023, another advert showed Carl making soup for Aleksandr and Sergei as thanks for letting him stay with them. However, Carl had misread the recipe book and had put a pint of chilli powder in the soup instead of just a pinch. Sergei eats the soup and collapses, due to the amount of chilli powder in the soup. The advert ends with a worried Aleksandr watching Sergei being taken away in an ambulance whilst Carl reads his recipe book and realises his mistake.

Broadcasts of adverts featuring Russian meerkat Aleksandr Orlov and his loyal companion Sergei will be restricted on television, because of concerns about sensitivities surrounding the invasion of Ukraine. In 2010, Compare the Meerkat began expanding on Aleksandr Orlov with the Orlov Family Trilogy, which gave a origin story for Compare The Meerkat and the man behind it.
